Hi everyone! I've 3 lovely chickens they're about a year old who lay me wonderful blue eegs almost every single day. Today I let the dogs into the garden (fenced off section from the chickens) an they start barking, so I stick my head out to see whats up an there is my chicken, squatting in the middle of the lawn. I thought she was just having a large poop but apparently not. As soon as I realized what was happening I ran upstairs to grab my phone because I wanted to film it, I've had chickens for several years and never once have I seen one lay an egg, let alone outside of her boxes in broad daylight so I was very excited. Came back down an I missed the magic moment sadly, went to grab the egg anyway an that's when I realized it was covered with blood and mucus which has never happened before. It's also oddly shaped and appears to have a strange discolored crack on it also. I've attached some pictures, any thoughts? As you can see it's not a small egg, so maybe she had trouble passing it? I just don't want her to be ill. They're not cuddly chickens by any means but I'm still attached to them an would be very upset if she was sick.
